For the day at Manenberg football fields we were treated to goalkeeper heroics in the days’ penalty shootout, Masidlale brushing aside their opposition and a "squeaky bum" tie between Greenhaven Spurs and Trinitarians.
Grassy Park United’s goalkeeper ensured their qualification for the next round of fixtures with a top draw final save in their penalty shootout against Elsies River. They were however also aided by some poor penalties from the Elsies River outfit who struggled to hit the target from 12 yards out. This once again showed a penalty shootout is much more a case of skill and composure than blind like as many armchair critics also profess.
